Mending the World One Stitch at a Time
Schmidt Center Gallery: November 8, 2019 - February 1, 2020
Hand & I, Mending the World One Stitch at a Time
An exhibition bringing together approximately 20 artists who use the delicate medium of embroidery to address society’s most pressing issues. While the ‘Hand’ patiently makes stitch after stitch, the ‘I’ presides over a resounding call for resistance to inhumane social policy. The artists address problems of climate, race, gender, immigration, and the U.S. prison system.
